Deadpool & Wolverine Reportedly Slipping Some Extra Length into the Deadpool Franchise

Deadpool & Wolverine is going longer than any previous Deadpool movie according to a new listing by AMC Theaters.

Deadpool & Wolverine is breaking franchise records long before it hits cinemas. According to AMC Theaters, the Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman MCU movie is going to clock in as the longest movie in the Deadpool franchise when it arrives on July 26, 2024. Although there is always time for things to change in the next couple of months, this year’s only MCU movie will easily eclipse the runtimes of Deadpool and Deadpool 2.

Despite not being officially confirmed by Marvel Studios, a listing on AMC Theaters, which also provides the synopsis of the new movie as previously released, states that Deadpool & Wolverine will have a runtime of 2 hours and 7 minutes. This puts it well ahead of both Deadpool’s 1 hour and 48 minutes, and Deadpool 2’s 1 hour and 59 minutes. With the film set to span multiple Marvel timelines and universes, it is probably not surprising that the Merc with a Mouth is coming in longer than ever before. With the film just over two months away, expect a final confirmation of this figure to come from Marvel Studios soon.

The extended runtime of Deadpool & Wolverine may well add to the hype surrounding the movie, as more time suggests more space for a world – or multiverse – of cameo appearances, timeline jumping, and a lot of Reynolds and Jackman doing what fans have wanted to see for years; coming together. The film is already set to explore what Reynolds originally called a “hate/hate” relationship between the titular heroes, and that has been clearly on display in the trailers released so far. However, there is going to be a lot more going on in the movie than just the pair of indestructible superheroes knocking seven bells out of each other – there is a multiverse to be saved, and only two people who can save it.

Deadpool & Wolverine Could Disappoint If It Does Not Deliver on Its Cameo Teases

Rumors regarding Deadpool & Wolverine opening up the multiverse cameo rule book and ripping it down the middle have been constantly filling up internet fan pages and social media sites. The speculation of who will and won’t appear in the film, along with who will be playing them, has overtaken that of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which was the first multiverse movie to really kick out several unexpected appearances.

Deadpool & Wolverine’s long list of possible cameos includes every main character from Fox’s X-Men universe, Avengers, alternate variants of popular MCU characters, and those never-ending theories of Taylor Swift dropping by to play Dazzler. While director Shawn Levy has done enough to tease the volume of cameos that will happen in the movie, it is a tease that could end up leaving some audiences feeling disappointed if they don’t turn out to be quite as far-reaching as suggested.

The actor believes that Ryan Reynolds changed significantly following the success of Deadpool & suggests that fame changed his personality.

Deadpool & Wolverine will likely unveil one more full trailer before the film’s arrival in July, and although that could unveil some more surprises, hopefully, Marvel Studios have learned that sometimes you don’t have to put everything in the trailers to entice people into theaters. The concept of Deadpool & Wolverine, combined with the fact that it is the only MCU offering of the year, is enough on its own to guarantee that the film becomes one of the biggest movies of the summer.
